You can help clean up this page by correcting spelling and grammar, removing factual errors and rewriting sections to ensure they are clear and concise, and moving some elements when appropriate.

United Kingdom makes many edits to Regular Show episodes containing cuss words like piss close-to-cussing words, such as "turd" and replacing cuss words like crap.

Edits

In General

Most episodes that use the term 'crap' are changed to 'crud', except for some exceptions listed below.

Three episodes that use the terms 'piss' or 'pissed' are changed to 'miffed', 'ballistic' or 'ticked'.

All episodes that use the term 'moron' are changed to 'idiot', except for some exceptions listed below.

Edits of this sort are commonplace in the UK on most television channels, with a recent poll by YouGov suggesting that language restrictions should be tightest for children's and family television. It can be seen here. . The British watershed is at 9:00pm, and even though Cartoon Network is 24-hour in the UK and could easily air unedited versions, it rarely shows Regular Show at all beyond this time, as any children's programme with language such as 'c--p' is seen as distasteful, this attitude is illustrated perfectly when a BBC Cebebies programme (full article here) aired with slang Caribbean language.

At an interesting note, when the Latin American episodes are changed to English, you can hear and see the UK edits. Go to this website you can hear the UK Edits and see the Latin American Edits http://eng.cartoonnetworkla.com/#/video/1_vo50kd6c/ The Power UK Edits/Latin American Edits

Most Episodes

  • When whatever is showing after Regular Show is announced, the credits from Prank Callers will show instead of the actual episodes' credits.[1] Other times, the credits from Rigby's Body will show. This sometimes does not happen.

Shorts

The Pilot

  • In showings of the pilot on the UK Cartoon Network website, when Benson tells Mordecai and Rigby they will be fired in the ending, "fired" is replaced with 'grounded'. The episode "First Day", however, uses the original word.

Season 1

The Power

  • Recently, "You hole!" said by Rigby, followed by "Don't call me a hole, you're the hole!" by Mordecai was cut due to innuendo. 
  • Rigby's line, "Now, how in the 'H' are we going to fix this 'S'?" is changed to "Now how in the 'H' are we going to fix this hole?" due to "H" and "S" being substitutes for inappropriate words.
  • When the wizard is urinating, the urine noise is removed, as well as him unzipping his pants, this is possibly done to show children not to urinate wherever they want.
  • The line, "Don't look at our crotches while we synchronize our watches" is cut out of Mordecai and Rigby's song to Skips, this is due to "looking at a crotch" being inappropriate.
    • Interestingly, on early UK commercials for the show, the announcer would state "Synchronize your watches, Regular Show is back!" This is odd considering the fact that UK viewers would not understand the reference due to the edit in the episode.
  • Rigby's line, "But he's gonna be pissed" is changed to "But he's gonna be miffed." This is due to "Piss" being an inappropriate word.
  • Also, recently "You Drill-bit!" was cut. This is due to a driblet possibly being a substitute for a male body part.  
  • When Benson calls The Power "Keyboard Crap" it's replaced with "Keyboard Crud". This is due to "crap" being an inappropriate word.

Just Set Up the Chairs

  • Rigby's line, "Benson's gonna drop his balls when he sees how good we set up these chairs!" is changed to "Benson's gonna drop his gumballs when he sees how good we set up these chairs!" This is due to innuendo.
  • Recently, "We're Screwed!" was cut. This is due to "screwed" being a mild inappropriate word. 

Caffeinated Concert Tickets

  • The line "...and ready to rock your 11-15 year old pants off!" is changed to "...and ready to rock your 11-15 year old jeans off!" This is due to innuendo.
  • Mordecai saying he cares about lady pecs was cut. This is due to "lady pecs" obviously meaning "breasts".
    • Strangely, the line "I can't believe you're going to a fist pump concert just for some lady pecs!" has been intact since late 2012.
  • Recently, the coffee bean squeezing coffee out his breasts has been removed, this is because it references breastfeeding.  
  • When Benson calls Mordecai and Rigby morons, 'morons' is replaced with 'idiots'. This is due to "moron" being an offensive word to people with a disability in the UK.
  • Before Rigby sleeps, he says "Aw, crap" is replaced with "Aw, crud". This is due to crap being an inappropriate word.

Death Punchies

  • Rigby saying that the Death Kwon Do Master has a 'crappy' mullet is replaced with 'cruddy'. This is due to "crap" being an inappropriate word.
  • "My pepperonis are roastin' down here!" is changed to "My chest hairs are roastin' down here!". This is due to "pepperonis" being a substitute for nipples.
  • The part of the flashback montage that shows Mordecai kicking Rigby in the crotch was removed; they took the scene of Mordecai punching Rigby from the beginning of the episode and put that in the original scene's place. This is due to the crotch being pointed out as a place to go for.

Free Cake

  • "But if you morons are lying to me you'll be on dish duty for the next month!" is changed to "But if you idiots are lying to me! You'll be on Dish Duty for the next month!" This is due to "Moron" being offensive to people with a disability in the UK.
  • The 'naked party' scene was cut by ending the scene with Muscle Man saying "Skips is gonna be surprised." The zipping sound effects are also edited out. This is due to the scene intending that Muscle Man is naked.
  • "Benson's gonna be pissed" was changed to "Benson's gonna go ballistic." This is due to "piss" being an inappropriate word.
  • Recently, the lines "I think we just screwed Skips!" and "And ourselves!" were cut. This is due to "screwed" being a mild inappropriate word. 

Meat Your Maker

  • "You Pissed Me Off!" was changed to "You Ticked Me Off!" This is due to "piss" being an inappropriate word.
  • Skips crashing the can against his head was recently cut. This is due to the scene possibly showing that the characters are drunk.
  • Rigby's line "While you were dead, I found these talking hot dogs.". was changed to "While you were unconscious, I found these talking hot dogs." This is due to the show possibly not wanting kids to think that Mordecai had died.

Grilled Cheese Deluxe

  • The UK version of "Ostrich Thing With the Balls" cut off after the ostrich swung the bat. This is due to the crotch being shown as a place to go for.

The Unicorns Have Got to Go

  • The unicorns' "lady flashbacks" were cut. This is due to the final flashback being a sexual reference.
  • "You Morons" was yet again changed to "You Idiots". This is once again due to "moron" being an offensive word to people with a disability in the UK.
  • "How'd you know?" and "They peed on my lawn." have recently been cut due to the scene showing that you can urinate wherever you want.

Prank Callers

  • "Holy Crap!" was changed to "Holy Crud!" due to "crap" being an inappropriate word. 
  • Recently, "I'm gonna prank you so hard, you're both gonna poop a duke!" was cut, due to it probably being a substitute for "you're both gonna crap yourselves!" 
  • "Crap!" was changed to "Crud!" due to "crap" being an inappropriate word.

Don

  • Rigby says "I don't want your stupid sugar!" instead of "I don't want your freaking sugar!" due to "freaking" sounding a lot like a similar inappropriate word "frigging".
  • "Crap!" was changed to "Crud!" due to "crap" being an inappropriate word.

Rigby's Body

  • Whenever the word "turd" is used, it is changed to "plank" due to "turd" being an inappropriate word.
  • Recently, "I told him he was full of it!" has been cut for 'it' refers to 'bull****'

Mordecai and the Rigbys 

  • "Holy Crap!" was changed to "Holy Crud!" due to "crap" being an inappropriate word.

  • When Mordecai shouts "Holy crap, it's real!" it's changed to "Oh man, dude, it's real!" due to "crap" being an inappropriate word.
  • Mordecai says "You're screaming like a flippin' maniac!" instead of "You're screaming like a freakin' maniac!" due to "freaking" sounding very similar to the inappropriate word "frigging". Strangely, this word was never censored again.

It's Time

  • The Pajama Sisters 2 video is not shown, and the website only shows "Pajama Sisters 2 sucks" for an unknown reason.
    • However, on the Cartoon Network UK blog, in one post, it includes Pajama Sisters 2 and a screenshot of the video.

Peeps

  • "Crap!" was changed to "Crud!" due to "crap" being an inappropriate word.

My Mom

  • "I knew I couldn't trust you morons" was changed to "I knew I couldn't trust you idiots" due to "moron" being an offensive word to people with a disability in the UK.
  • "Those Guys are turds!" was changed to "Those guys are planks!" due to "turds" being an inappropriate word.

Party Pete

  • Muscle Man's line, "It takes guests with breasts and mine don't count", was changed to "It takes guests with chicks, and my mom doesn't count" due to "breasts" being a body part that shouldn't be known as on a children's show.
  • The scene of Party Pete crotch-trusting when he showed up at the door is changed to a close-up shot of him tapping his foot due to "crotch thrusting" being a sexual position.

Temp Check

  • The scene of the muscular redneck biker playing a harmonica by putting in between his buttcheeks and farting into it was replaced with a newly animated scene in which the biker plays a kazoo by shoving it up his nose due to grossness.

Really Real Wrestling

  • The second manager's line "What, do you think I'm a moron?" was changed to "What, do you think I'm a dummy?" due to "moron" being an offensive word to people with a disability in the UK.

The Night Owl

  • Muscle Man's line "I can't wait to shove my key into that!" was changed to "I can't wait to peel donuts into that!" due to innuendo.

Over the Top

  • The first scene with Rigby in the hospital is cut due to it possibly being too sad for British viewers.
  • All references to the restaurant name "McHooligan's" are cut: the establishing shot of McHooligan's has the name digitally removed, and Muscle Man's line, "McHooligan's, round two!" was changed to "Family restaurant, round two!", this is done due to a hooligan being a troublemaker.
  • Hi Five Ghost's line "Shotgun!" was cut as the editors could have thought he was talking about the actual weapon.
  • The scene of Death reviving Rigby by spitting in his mouth is changed to Death firing a laser at him with his finger due to spitting being illegal in the UK.

Daddy Issues

  • Just like Gut Model, the episode title was cut for being inappropriate, referencing psychological damage causing sexual immorality in later life.

  • Natalia doesn't hold a pistol at all in the episode, due to it being more of a serious hostage situation.
  • On the control device, CCCP is removed and replaced with some colors due to the same reason as the other CCCP edits.
